Yesterday we went shopping and I thought I'd show you my fun bargains. The chalks were on clearance for $1.00 each. The Memories soft lilac stamp pad was gotten with my 40%coupon. The happy face stickers plus a bunch of others were 59 cents for the lot. The fun Rhonna Farrer clear stamps were unmounted. I mounted them on really thick foam board using double-faced tape made especially for the foam board. Not fun, but I finally got them done and love the new assortment and for only $3.00! Also pictured here is a beautiful ribbon yarn in varigated purples and blues' etc. The flower stamp on a wood block was from Michael's dollar bin. Can't wait to try these out! Hoping for you a day filled with contentment and God's love because of John 3:16.
This is what I've been doing today, making my 3 bean soup. I love this soup, its nutritious and lasts for days. Each time I make it it turns out a little differently, depending on the seasonings. In case you'd like to try it..I will post the recipe...which is mostly made up, after a yummy restaurant soup that I liked.
3 cans different type beans, rinsed
2- 15 ounce cans diced tomatoes
1 large can..28 oz. crushed tomatoes in puree.
3 or so stalks of celery, cut in small pieces
1 cup of dry pasta, I like orzo and tiny star pasta
- 2 bouillion beef cubes
- 1 small can tomato sauce
- 2 cups water
- seasoning of your choice, I use roasted garlic/parmesan cheese dipping spices sprinkled in
- generous pinch of dried parsley
- several 'steakems' fried and crumbled/or leftover ham cubed...etc. whatever you have...
- Combine all in large pan and simmer until celery is done but still a little crunchy and pasta is done.
